Milonga in Buenos Aires
flight may have been delayed and long but
their excitement rose when they took off
from Sao Paolo on the last leg into
afternoon, after just a hurried snack,
some of the group visited the El Arranque
milonga at La Nueva Argentina. It was
crowded and the floor was hard but they
soon plucked up the courage to step out
on the dance floor - this was real Tango;
this was Buenos Aires!
were surprised by the salsa cortinas
between groups of tango pieces and the
way couples stood around talking for
several bars of each new piece of music
but they soon adapted.
